Ozark Yard Sale Ordinance Passes

Last month, Ozark officials were thinking about passing a yard sale ordinance to regulate the number of sales within the city.

Tuesday, the ordinance passed with some changes.

The city will require anyone wanting to hold a sale within its limits to register for a permit.

The permit will not cost any money but it will regulate the number of sales allowed.

Each resident will only be allowed two/ three-day sales per year with the exception of a moving sale.

The ordinance is set up to prohibit people establishing a yard-sale business without a business license.

City Council Member Jerome Dudley said, “It's important because a lot of people are abusing the system with yard sales. They're having them all the time which they really don't need.”

The ordinance will go into effect September first.
